A diver has died after becoming trapped underwater near Two Rocks, this morning.

A police spokesman said the man's body was found by divers just after 9am.

It’s believed he was free diving - without the aid of breathing apparatus - for cray pots some 4-5 metres below the surface.

Water Police said he was not part of a commercial operation.

“The diver has possibly become trapped or entangled underwater," a spokesman said. "Local police and water police have attended and confirmed one diver is deceased. The body has just been recovered.”

The incident happened just north of Two Rocks Marina, about 60km north of Perth.

It is understood the man, aged in his 50s, was well known in the area.

Police inquiries are continuing.
